San Diego, California – February 3, 2020 – Many items require thermal environmental
testing. Items going through product development, requiring validation for high
reliability applications and products exposed to extreme environments among others
require specific thermal testing.
Diligent adherence to requirements results in performing meaningful test and
ultimately higher quality products as opposed to simply taking the easiest route
to put a testing checkmark in the box.
A few important aspects to the testing can help ensure that best practices in
thermal testing are followed to get real results from testing efforts.
Testing can be time consuming. Properly applied automation will increase the
repeatability and can produce consistent results. Test results can be automatically
stored on the test equipment, in the cloud or automatically printed to a network
printer. Automation also reduces some unexpected uncertainties in the testing such
as reducing the temptation to open the door/lid of the chamber during the test.
In addition to disturbing the temperature uniformity of the test, if cool air is
introduced when the system is at extreme hot or cold temperatures, moist air can
result in unwanted condensation or corrosion on the devices being tested. Best heat
transfer will get the job done most effectively. When possible conductive heat transfer
will achieve the setpoint in less time with less energy.
When heat transfer by conduction
is not possible or practical a convection chamber or a hybrid combining conduction
and convection is a good idea. When using a temperature chamber, for best heat transfer,
be sure that air flow across the device is as great as possible to transfer heat
effectively as possible. Use of secondary sensor(s) in a chamber or thermal platform
can be applied to either verify that critical zones in the product to be tested
actually achieve the specified or with a controller that employs smarter temperature
control algorithms which can consider both the system temperature and individual
device under test (DUT) temperature Prior to purchase, always give plenty of consideration
to the most preferred cooling method given the testing requirements and facilities
About TotalTemp Technologies
The primary goal for TotalTemp is to maximize the combined 40 years experience we
have in this highly specialized field and create a new, alternative, "Next Generation"
Thermal Platforms and Temperature Testing equipment. Our Mission is to offer thermal
testing equipment that best suits or customers’ requirements. For several decades
there were only two real manufacturers for thermal platforms. It was no secret that
the market demanded a new alternative with better service and lower costs. We heard
you loud and clear and TotalTemp is here to fill that need.
